The time pressure's impact on the junior associate's well-being. (English)
Abstract [en]

Within the audit profession, the time pressure is common and studies show that the phenomenon has increased in recent years. Previous research has examined how the audit quality is influenced by the time pressure and less focus has been on how the auditor is actually affected. The purpose of the study is to create a greater understanding of how the time pressure affects junior associates’, within Swedish large auditing firms, perceived well-being. Furthermore, well-being is studied from two aspects; work satisfaction and work-life balance.

 

To answer the purpose with the study, qualitative interviews with a semi-structured form have been accomplished. The sample of the study consisted of ten junior associates employed by large auditing firms, which generated the empirical basis. The empirical material was then analyzed together with the theoretical framework to reach a result.

 

The result showed that seven out of ten junior associates periodically experienced a reduced well-being, in relation to time pressure. However, the result indicated that the time pressure does not have an impact on the aspect job satisfaction. Though, the time pressure seems to affect the balance between work and leisure in the smallest extent. Thus, this relationship can form a basis for further research and be applied in a larger perspective, to find out whether the imbalance is a problem. In conclusion, the fact remains that seven out of ten junior associates’ well-being were negatively affected by the time pressure. Further, this indicates that the problem of which well-being aspects that are actually affected, remains.
